Are we asking too much of Dr Paul?Submitted by TimWA on Mon, 01/16/2012 - 18:47
"A tired-looking Ron Paul showed up in South Carolina Sunday after a four-day disappearing act that has some close aides wondering if their candidate is running short on stamina.
"Dr. Paul is tired. Campaigning for President is hard work,” says Terry Andrews, a Paul supporter. “But he’s in great shape.”
Others aren’t so sure. Paul has shown increasing irritability on the campaign trial recently, snapping at aides, showing flashes of temper with interviewers and telling people to “get out of my way” when the crowds crush in.
He looks tired and his voice trails off in speeches and in interviews.
“Some of the pressures of the campaign are getting to him,” an aide admits to Capitol Hill Blue.
Another- "How old is Ron Paul?"
"If elected president, Ron Paul will be 77 on the day of his inauguration, making him the oldest person ever to assume our nation’s highest office. Ron Paul would be starting his presidency at the same age Ronald Reagan ended his. If Ron Paul served two terms, he would leave office at the ripe ol’ age of 85."
